Cohen Gan expresses the transition from conceptual art to concrete. He tries to reconstruct a code in which Cohen is characterized by the creator, the real, the logician and the intellectual. His works combine the personal impression that traces the process to mathematical formulas from the world of science.

His works are well designed, made of bright colors and usually combined with collage.

In his works he deals with the history of art, society, place, science, viewer and himself.

From the words of Minister of Education Yuli Tamir and journalist and art critic Adam Baruch: Pinchas Cohen Gan is a breakthrough artist in the young art of the early 1970s. He is a modernist who constantly renews himself in a supreme painting. He is a esthetic, sensitive and intellectual who is loyal to the history of painting.

Awards:

1978 The Isaac Stern Memorial Prize for the America-Israel Cultural Foundation.

 Sandberg Prize "The Israel Museum", Jerusalem.1979

Israel Prize for Art. 2008

His works are found in many important museums and with many collectors in Israel and abroad.
